This report summarizes data on selected home improvements including information on the frequency and types of work done, who did the work, and costs. Improvements are defined for this report in a broad sense. They refer not only to jobs that expand or alter the structure, for example adding rooms, but also to those that repair it, such as fixing a leaky roof. Current Construction Reports, including Expenditures for Residential Improvements and Repairs, use a more rigorous definition of the term. This as well as other differences are discussed in appendix C of this report.
